Muhammad Zulkifli Nordin or better known as Zul is gaining attention on social media after posting a few videos of his daily life as a physically-challenged fresh graduate.
The 25-year-old from Gua Musang is the only one in his family born without arms.
Speaking to mStar, Zul said, “I use my legs instead of my hands. Of course, there are limits to this, and only then will I ask help from others.
“It’s a huge challenge. But I take it in stride.”
The estate management graduate of UiTM joined social media just about three weeks ago to learn more about video editing and marketing.
Earlier this year, Zul started his journey as a real estate consultant and chose to use the power of social media to build his own empire.
“I want to share videos related to real estate but I started off by sharing videos about myself first.
“I just wanted to learn how to edit videos and things related to it. I was surprised that it gained the attention of many users,” he said.
Although he requires physical assistance at times, Zul can eat and write using his own feet independently.
Despite his disability, Zul has always been active in sports especially in football and sepak takraw. In 2018, he even participated as a runner in the Malaysia Games (Sukma) in Perak.
Zul said that he’s incredibly grateful for everything he’s had and would often advice those in the same boat as him to be patient. He reminded them,
“It’s true that this situation will make us become more withdrawn and afraid but we have to be strong and push ourselves forward.
“If you feel that you’re not capable, remember that there are many others who are less fortunate than us.
“We have to be positive.”
